George Mason prof: ‘Why are white parents producing so many white terrorists?’

Directing and screenwriting professor Nikyatu Jusu also queried on the social media platform “What is going on in your households? How involved are you with your sons? Are you missing signs their racism is filtering out of commonplace household racism into ‘I want to murder strangers’ racism?”

Jusu, whose filmography “straddles the lines of social resonance coupled with ‘butts in seats story-telling” according to her university webpage, garnered 26,000 retweets and almost 70,000 likes on her original tweet.

The College Fix emailed Jusu for comment about her tweets, but did not receive a reply before publication.
